Air Rifle Silhouette Distances

Post by TomJ »

In an effort to preserve what little sanity I might have had, I bought a set of 1/10 scale air gun silhouettes. I’ll be using my FWB 300 with the standard target sights (aperture). What is the correct distance for iron sights and, if different, the distance for a scoped rifle? Thanks for your help, Tom

I put peep sights on my HW77. Most of the time I shoot 1/5th scale animals at the air rifle distances. I do have a set of 1/10 scale animals and I do shoot at them, pun intended. The 1/10th scale is tough. But it is good training. As has been said, aim small, miss small. I really enjoy iron sight air rifle silhouette.
